Blank Generation




Blank Generation

Originally uploaded by AndyWilson.

An accidentally blank instant photograph makes the connection between the emptiness of contemporary middle age and the nihilism of youth 30 years ago. The stray hair and the scanner artefacts remind of us the imperfections that become more apparent with age, while the emptiness of the frame and the shiny texture lets us reflect on the invisibility of the middle aged in modern society.

The latticed surround adds a twist that hints the artist may not be entirely serious :)
